The clinical pilot study of MediRätt's digital drug dispensing machine Dosell is now successfully completed. The study confirms the weaknesses of Dosett and Apodos dispensing aids and shows positive results for Dosell.
The study has compared the storage container Dosett with the dose bags Apodos as well as evaluated how MediRätt's digital drug dispenser Dosell works in practice. The result of the study confirms the risk of various types of mismedication with Dosett and Apodos. The study also confirms other shortcomings of existing home dispensing aids - the Dosett cassettes proved to be difficult and time consuming for district nurses to handle, among other things.
The drug dispenser Dosell worked flawlessly in 98.5% of cases. The error is attributable to the hardware and will be addressed in the production of Dosell. The alarm function worked flawlessly in all tests.
"The results of the study confirm our belief that Dosell can both reduce patient suffering and relieve healthcare. Based on the results of the study, it takes a full-time district to charge and load Dosettes at a medium-sized Swedish healthcare center with home care services. Here's a huge potential for Dosell to become a tool that frees resources in healthcare," says Göran Sjönell, general practitioner and inventor of Dosell.
"This is a big breakthrough for us. We have focused intently on developing Dosell for a long time and it is incredibly exciting that the study now shows such a positive result. We are moving forward according to plan and look forward to strengthening our funding without having to raise new capital from existing shareholders in the future, "says Carl Johan Merner, CEO of MediRätt.
The report from the study is posted on the company's website www.mediratt.com and published in Bonnier's newsletter, Läkemedelsmarknaden idag.

The trial in brief
The clinical study has been conducted in collaboration with Apoteket. The trial has been led by four doctors and six district nurses responsible for patients in home care. The study has been conducted at two health centers in Stockholm. The variables studied are time consumed in handling the different systems, compliance with the ordination, error doses, Dosell's functionality and alarm, and the satisfaction of patients, relatives and healthcare professionals. For Dosett and Apodos, fifteen patients were included in each test group. Five Dosell prototypes were included in the study, and a total of 325 dose dispensations were performed with Dosell.
